    Please consider implementing Dropbox's password strength library in future versions of plesk. https://github.com/dropbox/zxcvbn

    Right now (Plesk Onyx Version 17.8.11) very secure passwords such as applaud-bisque-batch-forefoot won't even pass the "medium" filter, and very bad passwords such as Pa$$word123 are marked "Strong".

    Brute force cracking continues to get more sophisticated and the current strength ratings are misleading.

    Hello @Peter,

    Thank you for sharing your idea. I have created a feature suggestion.

    The top-rated features will be implemented in next Plesk updates.
